“Apps I use daily include Dropbox, iAnnotatePDF, TranscriptPad, and Dictamus. Also, the 2012 CLM annual conference app was fantastic. It allowed us to have the schedule, all handouts and speaker bios, the hotel map, and the attendee list at our fingertips...literally.”

“I use Dropbox to share and edit my documents seamlessly across my smartphone, desktop, and tablet device in the cloud. I use TripIt to ‘auto-magically’ import and organize my various travel itineraries and add them to my calendar.”
2. Simon Keshishian, Director of Risk Management, Red Bull. CLM Fellow since 2010.
“The apps I use most are Weather Channel or Forecast Now, Google Maps, Where’s My Truck (to find where a USF truck is delivering), USF Customer Locator (to find a good customer restaurant), Dropbox, and Uber.”

“The LinkedIn app helps me connect with my peers and keeps me involved in discussions relevant to the commercial insurance industry.”
4. Tim Sinyak, General Manager, SalvageSale. CLM Fellow since 2012.
“Apps that maximize time and turn my phone into a multi-function device are beneficial. I use Voice Recorder, Pitch Gauge, and Deltek to bill my time. I’m researching apps that integrate with Xactimate to diagram and measure a loss.”
